FRANKFURT, GERMANY: International Chemical Investors Group (ICIG), a privately owned industrial holding company, will acquire Solvay’s subsidiary, Peptisyntha SA, the Brussels, Belgium, based custom manufacturer of peptides for pharmaceutical use. Upon closing of the deal, Peptisyntha will become a member of ICIG’s CordenPharma platform as its third site offering peptides manufacturing.

With the divestment of Peptisyntha, Solvay will focus on its core industrial activities, and completes the group’s exit from life science activities. As a CordenPharma member company, Peptisyntha will continue to execute its growth strategy, serving a wide range of applications and customers. While the US sister company Peptisyntha Inc, Torrance, California, is not part of the transaction, certain of its customer relationships will be assumed by Peptisyntha in Brussels.

“With Peptisyntha, we are adding industry-leading liquid phase synthesis capabilities and a team of highly skilled staff. Together with our solid-phase, hybrid synthesis, and development capacities at our sites in Boulder, Colorado, and Liestal, Switzerland, we will be in an excellent position to offer customers the full range of peptide synthesis strategies and services,” said Christian Ewers, Chief Operating Officer, API business, CordenPharma.
